When asked to describe herself, Karen Fainges says teacher, wife, mother and writer, though not necessarily in that order. 

The Shaytonian chronicles were born one day as a story to keep her cousin and sister from being bored. The spark grew through many retellings, some in short stories, some in role-play. All those years of games, tears and laughter are distilled into a much more adult version than that long ago tale.

Still, the childlike wonder of life, the fierce need for acceptance that we all can feel and the belief that the universe really does revolve around us; all comes through in this irreverent stab at all those old B movies. What if out there, there really was a race of beautiful slaves looking for a male with whom to rebuild the species?

And what if he said, "Sure, why not?"


Karen Fainges passed away a few years ago and is survived by her husband and children.

Writers Exchange is a Christian publishing house, although we do publish many, many other genres and not all our authors are Christian:)

We have been publishing and selling books since 2000, but in 2017 we decided to sell MOST of our books exclusively from Amazon. A number of our books are also available from other retailers. We have made it very easy for you to find our books from whichever retailer you prefer, either in the "buy" links on each book page, but also by the Menu Item "Our Books by Retailer" which will show you our books at Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.

So what is here, that is not available at Amazon and other distributors?
* "Universe" pages that go into a lot more detail about the various fictional universes some of our authors have created,
* Free Short Stories by our authors (which will also be on our blog)
* upcoming: author interviews - which will also be on our blog (where you can get new content/releases emailed directly to you!)
* and other fun things as we think of them :)

We hope you enjoy!

We have supplied the address as a graphic, to prevent bots, so you will have to type it into your email program manually :)
